Ah, please excuse my stupidity and ignorance. I now see a small black sticker with a number on it.

Dear Trotter, i am afraid i do have a standad paperback edition, and a couple of normal hardcovers. I have my super deluxe edition to keep, but i need another to open, to smell and touch and read.
Mental i know,...its a problem


You might have noticed that I mentioned my unopened copy, I have two copies of the Super Deluxe book one which is open and one still in the box. I also have a paperback copy, a signed Trade Edition and a signed Deluxe Edition. Though I would always read the paperback copy.

Can you let us know the number of your book, we are trying to find out when HC may run out of these books for sale?

Microsoft have been assisting libraries with scanning of books that are now out of copyright at books.live.com.

I did a search for Tolkien and found that a copy of "A Middle English Vocabulary" has been scanned and is free to download as a PDF file, you can also search the book as it has been run through OCR software.

I don't own this book, so it is very nice to be able use it as a reference book.

You can download it here.


The link doesn't work anymore. Is there someone who has downloaded the book and wants to email it to me? Just let me know in a pm and I'll send you my email address.

Thanks

It has some elements that look quite 'Tolkienish' - e.g. the signature line under Tolkien - but that's all. The t, k and n in Tolkien are very different from his handwriting
I am quite sure it is a fake.
A shame to ruin a rare book with a fake signature...
